Visited here on a rainy morning and were pleasantly surprised . There is a great collection of vehicles and machinery and it was very interesting. Good value for money.

We (myself, Mum and 5 year old daughter) visited the museum on Liberation Day (we were a bit disappointed that there was no celebratory ambiance, especially after local media led us to believe that 'something' was happening ). My daughter found it quite interesting walking around the museum and asked lots of questions about the vehicles and equipment on display,... More

There is no doubt that this represent the creators life work. Some beautiful exhibits if somewhat packed in. Reasonably priced and if next time we visit jersey there is an event happening we would go back. Includes everything from tractors to cars, steam engines to old household appliances and church organs to cinema organs. One moving moment was reading the... More

We went on Thursday as that was the advertised day to catch a ride on the steam train, however it was not running and this is basically a large warehouse full of clutter! A few old vehicles nicely restored but no interesting information on most of it, a few boards of newspapers cuttings and a lot of just stuff! Serious... More

On a recent visit to Jersey we paid a visit here one showery afternoon. Firstly and surprisingly there was a much larger number of exhibits that we expected. The items are housed in a large spacious building and represented much more than just 'Steam and Motor'. That said the only disappointment was the fact that so many of the 'lesser'... More

This place has it all from Steam trains to a Sinclair C5 and everything in between. It houses tractors, vintage vehicles, children's toys through the years, old radios and even washing machines where you had to use a mangle. Good place to visit especially if it's raining as it's undercover.

My girlfriend and I would like to say to anyone visiting Jersey you must seriously consider making a trip to the Pallot Steam and general Motor Museum. We went to Jersey out of season and although the museum is closed they can open on request. A wide variety of rare and unusual examples of a bygone age. All they ask... More

This museum is absolutely packed with transport items but also things like glass lamps and childrens' toys. There is also a steam train you can ride on if you visit on a Thursday. Brilliant place you could spend hours here!
